So how did she find out about the job? "I saw the listing online," she told NewsChief.com. "And when I read the qualifications, I knew I could do it. It called for someone with cataloging experience, foreign language - mine is French, and music." Since starting this unique library position in November 2010, Banks has "experienced a lot of surprises. I've come across original manuscripts and a mechanical player system and dozens and dozens of parchment reels. I am still trying to find out the history of it."
